Here are all the Canadian Game Awards 2021 nominees

2020 was a tremendous year in the gaming space. While the industry adapted to the difficulties of developing games in quarantine, gaming communities around the world embraced indie gems and big budget AAA titles with the same excitement. 2020 has been anything but uneventful for gamers, and this is just as true in Canada as it is in the rest of the world.

In 2020 we saw a number of ambitious new titles from studios around Canada make their debut. We saw Canadian content creators and streamers work hard to entertain, educate, and challenge their audiences. We saw the top Canadian esports competitors prove themselves on arenas both at home and abroad.

Now, we prepare to celebrate excellence in the Canadian gaming space once more. The 2021 Canadian Game Awards Selection Committee has deliberated on Canada’s best contenders and nominations in over 20 categories.
